. the president mentioned the teachers and some of the educators that were there at the sandy hook elementary school debt helped the kids get away from the shooter and get out of the building. in "the new york times," they talk about two that went the extra mile. we will talk a little bit more about the principle and the school psychologist who were among the six adults killed yesterday. the next call comes from catherine in florida. caller: my mom has been a teacher for over 20 years. i have a six-year old daughter and a niece and they go to the school she teaches at. when i heard the news, i thought, this could have been our little school. it is devastating and just disgusting what has happened. i think that our country needs to take a look at what we can do as far as security at these schools. i think something needs to be mandated to protect the children. we cannot continue to let this go on. host: talk to me about the security measures that they have at the school where your kids go to school. caller: there is a fence around the playground around the sides of the school. everything stays

their american citizenship so they do not have to pay any taxes in america. as far as these kids in sandy, my oldest daughter told me we are going to see lots more of these things unless kids are given a better future to hope for rather than being some rich person's slave. host: thank you for the call. guest: you are right. the rich, no matter what the tax level, they have a way of getting around their taxes. that goes back to the point i was saying. it is not about what level of rate we put taxes on individuals. we have to reduce spending them big she said obama has given in to republicans paying bank i am not sure what he has given in on. he has not been at the table and then he has been traveling all over the country promoting raising taxes on millionaires and billionaires and then doing their fair share. spending is causing this problem. spending levels and the debt is what is creating this poor economy and the recovery we have seen. obama's failed policies have created such a soft economy today. we have to start dealing with the spending the event we have to treat the problem. that is th

chasing criminals. i would like to mention something about the sandy hook incident. i found it ironic that these people were meeting in the school for all this prayer. when prayer's outlawed in school. also, they had the high priest of abortion there giving his appeal which became very political. that is just ironic. host: a lot of the conversation is about these extended clips. how do you feel about those? caller: i have a different take on owning assault rifles and extended clips and things like that. we are guaranteed by our constitution bill of rights to be able to own these things. it is not necessarily for home protection as much as it is to be ready in case we need to refresh the tree of liberty with the blood of tyrants or to protect ourselves from invasion. i don't see anything wrong with being able to own these. i tell you what. that sandy hoook thing was such a crushing event for all of us. we have to think this stuff through more. host: have you ever had the opportunity to use your weapon or to pull it out? caller: not since vietnam. host: scott, good morning. caller: i be

, there is more than a compromise here. we know we have to rebuild the states that were ravaged by hurricane sandy. we know that the whole nation needs help. let's roll up our sleeves and send a clear message to our fellow americans in the rest of the country that we are prepared to go back to work. this is neither a democratic or republican issue. infrastructure is vitally important to everyone. it shouldn't take anything more than calling the bill up and voting on it. i think it the other issue that everyone agrees on is the whole issue with regard to the middle class tax cut. everybody, including billionaires', would get a $250,000 tax cut. why risk the uncertainty, why take people to this fiscal cliff during this holiday season when this could easily be addressed? then you can come back and haggle in january. no one has to break a pledge. as tom cole eloquently said, he is not raising anyone's taxes, he is preventing them from being raised on the middle-class. step up to the plate, send that message to the entire world that we are secure. long-term, i think we need to focus on health care cost
